Darvon is classified as a centrally acting narcotic pain reliever. "Centrally acting" means that it works in the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord), rather than directly at the site of the pain. Darvon is not considered as "strong" as most other narcotic pain relievers and is particularly dangerous in the case of overdoses. As a result, Darvon is not usually a "first-choice" pain medication in most situations.
For more details, please do talk to the doc who prescribed the med, take care, stay well & safe!
